“ Glorius Autumn Day in Kyoto ”

Very pleasant, competent and profesional tour guide. On subways, taxis, and on foot we covered all the major Kyoto attractions that could be covered in one day. Katsuko even drew us a map we could use to visit on our own the next day at the Nishiki Market and the Gion geisha complex. She also drew for us a map with Japanese instructions to help taxi drivers find our small apartment/hotel which was very helpful. We were fortunste to find Katsuko.

Katsuko:

Dear Ervin, Thank you very much for your kind review. I'm glad to know that you enjoyed the tour. It was really nice meeting you and I truly enjoyed the time and the conversation with you. I sincerely hope to see you again in the future. Best wishes, Katsuko Ozaki

“ A great day of gardens and food ”

We asked Katsuko to design a tour focusing on both major and lesser-known gardens in Kyoto, and she put together a great day for us. She also guided us through the Kyoto market and gave us great culinary information. Highly recommended.

Katsuko:

Dear Matt, Thank you very much for your kind review. I'm glad to know that you enjoyed the tour. I also enjoyed the day with you visiting the gardens. I hope to see you again in the future. Best wishes, Katsuko Ozaki

“ A fun education ”

Katsuko arranged a wonderful first day in Kyoto for us. She helped us understand the temples, shrines, local neighborhoods, and the Nishiki food market. Thanks to her we are on strong footing for the rest of our visit. She was very informative of the history of each place we visited. She also designed a route that lead from one place to another seamlessly. She did it all with a smile and a great sense of humor.

Katsuko:

Dear Jeri, Thank you very much for your kind review. It was so nice meeting you and I really enjoyed the time with you, especially the fun conversation with you during the tour. I hope you'll enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan, and hope to see you again some time in the future. Best Wishes, Katsuko Ozaki

“ Lovely day exploring Kyoto ”

We had a wonderful half day with Katsuko exploring beautiful Kyoto. We visited so many beautiful places and Katsuko explained their significance in Japanese culture. We learned many new things throughout the day. Katsuko was kind and patient with our children and found interesting things for them to see. She helped us with many suggestions for our time in Kyoto.

Katsuko:

Dear Katy, Thank you very much for your kind review. You are such a wonderful family and it was so lovely meeting you all. I'm glad to know that you enjoyed the day, and I really enjoyed the day with you too. Please give my best regards to your family, and Dino & Bunny.
